Lord Tebbit gives his reaction to the Lawrence trial

Lord Tebbit gave Radio 5 live Breakfast his reaction to the conviction of two men for the murder of Stephen Lawrence in 1993.

He had been critical of the Macpherson Inquiry of 1999, which found that the Metropolitan Police was "institutionally racist" in its handling of the Lawrence investigation.

On Wednesday Gary Dobson was jailed for a minimum of 15 years two months and David Norris was sentenced to a minimum of 14 years and three months. They both deny killing the teenager.
